The new Quarterly is the response of the Trustees to a per- 
sistent request from pupils old and new. It is issued in the interests 
of the Academy, and the hopes of the Trustees will be realized if 
it is the means of extending the influence and usefulness of the 
institution.

In efficiency and attendance and income this is certainly the 
best year ever known by the Academy. This is due to several 
factors. Widespread interest in the institution was aroused by the 
completion of the fund of $45,000 for reconstruction a year ago, 
to which Andrew Carnegie contributed $10,000. This fund meant 
the addition of the splendid administration building and the re- 
moval of the obligations incurred at various times in erecting other 
buildings, making all new. 

A factor of great importance, too, has been the co-operation of 
many old students and friends, not alone in money, but in directing 
students to the Academy. 

The third factor is the Faculty. These are the Instructors, in 
addition to Dean W. P. McKee: Elsie G. Hobson, A.M., Lady 




THE FRANCES SHIMER QUARTERLY 

Principal, Latin; Elsie Morrison, S.B., Science and Mathematics; 
Cora C. Tardy, A.B., Expression; Alice N. Simpson, A.B., Ger- 
man and French ; Harriet Lee, A. B., English ; Bertha R. Bowman, 
Domestic Science; Delana Bailey, Stenography; Martha Green and 
Martha Powell, Assistants. All these are in the Scholastic Depart- 
ment. 

In Music, Emil Liebling, Chicago, is Visiting Director; Dora 
G. Knight has Piano, History of Music, and Counterpoint; 
Lyravine Votaw, Vocal and Harmony; Isabel Sleight, Violin and 
Piano ; and in Art, Grace M. Bawden is Instructor. 

These teachers make the Academy what it is. as an institution 
of higher education, and it is to them the Trustees are indebted 
for a large, very large, measure of its best endeavor and highest 
success. 

The Academy is in trouble because of its prosperity. It cannot 
grow more in house pupils without a new dormitory. It needs 
$20,000 for this purpose. One offer of $5,000 has been made con- 
tingent on securing the rest. The Trustees do not know what to 
do They do not see their way to solicit die same friends who 
gave $45,000 a year ago. Yet progress in numbers is stopped until 

the dormitory is secured. . 

Meantime it is definitely determined that a new academic cour> 
will be established called "The General Course" from which a girl 

™\^teT^» to the regular College Pre^ory 
Couleal now given, in which four years of L*. 1 «« *jd- 
of yore. These academic courses will be enriched by*c 
of a half-year in Botany and a full year oi B^le-Study. 

It has also been definitely determined that more ^umor J* W 
work shall be given next year-the «£•«?£ ^M #* 
a full two years of college work will be offered and 
so far as a demand for it appears. xv 

This will be good news to many people »« ^^ dsewhere

but plans have already been determined on by which eight courses 
aggregating two years of college work will be given, and more if 
demand appears. This outline is official, but is subject to change 
Correspondence is invited. If a new dormitory i s not secured 
judging by the demand in the past year, rooms will be at a premium 
in the Summer, for next year.

History, Latin, English, Greek. 
Are studies which we all do seek. 
We wish to know the time and place 
Of each new progress of a race : 
We wish to speak the language old 
Of Homer and Achilles bold : 
Of Caesar, Vergil, Horace, too; 
We learn them as if they were new : 
And Mathematics hard and great 
We try to shove into our pate. 
But oh! with English we just stop 
And let our heart go flippy flop 
While wond 'ring what we're coming to 
Abhorred exams in two weeks due.

I came and stood alone with beating heart. 
For with my blessed knowledge I must part: 
On paper now must be all things I knew 
And also many tilings I didn't, too. 




T HE FRANCES SIHM nTg^ 

An Slnjjpmrttt 
She was a tender, frail little thing, so helpless as to be l 

pitiable SO weak as to be almost miserable. Her great bla k ' 

stared at me when she opened them wide, but when she sat le ?** 

back among the pillows they were always half closed rivimr h? 

a dreamy appearance. Her tangled black curls were usually 

dangling about her face in a most distracting fashion; her nose 

was perfect, and her mouth must have been modeled after the 

si ry-book ideals. And then that dimple just above the upper lip 

on the left cheek-was there ever a more charming place for a 

dimple? Her complexion was bewitching— exactly like the kind 

you buy— but usually, yes, all the time, her hands' and face were 

dirty. But .. T . ' 

1 loved her and 

She loved me and 

That was bliss." 

Once, as she and I sat on the sofa, I thinking of the time when 
I should be grown up and famous, possibly a president, or at least 
a mayor, and she — well, she never thought of anything, she was 
really very stupid. Suddenly a bright idea came to me. 

"Marion," I cried, "Come with me. Come where we shall be 
bored no longer by people who smile when I kiss you and who 
nod approvingly when I leave you to take up a book. Come, let 
us go where there is candy and ice cream, candy and ice cream, my 
dear, and pie and cake, oh, yes ! Marion, coffee! You love coffee, 
don't you?" 

Marion smiled her approval. Marion was not given to words. 

It took only a moment to tie on her little bonnet and for me to 
get my big sun hat. 

We hurried out of the door and out into the street, quite 
unmindful of the fact that we were running away. We were going 
somewhere ; we knew not where. We had gone two blocks ; I had 
never gone so far alone before, and Marion was even less experi- 
enced than I. 

"Oh!" I shouted, "There's a train." But we waited for it to 
pass just as big folks waited, and then went solemnly on into the 
main street of the little city. 

"Now," I whispered to my tiny sweetheart, "We will go to 
Mr. John's candy store. He has asked me ever so many times to 




THE FRANCES SHIMER QUARTERLY 



live with him and he'd just as soon you'd come too. Isn't it 
grand?" And I held her a little closer to me. She had long 
since grown tired and I was compelled to carry her. 

"Here we are now. Wake up, dear," I told her as we entered 
the store. 

Mr. John seemed somewhat surprised when he found that we 
had come to stay, hut made the best of it by first giving us ice- 
cream and then candy. Marion was impolite enough to look as if 
she would like a cup of coffee, but she did not get it. I felt sorry 
for her, because I don't think it would have hurt her a bit; indeed 
I know it would not, and it would have done me a great deal of 
good. 

But we were very proud to be introduced as Mr. John's chil- 
dren; we felt already that the confectionery store was ours. 

Mother, in some unexplainable way, had found out where we 
were and decided to let me stay until evening. Marion's mother 
never worried about her. But long before evening Marion became 
restless and wanted to go home. Mr. John had no paper dolls and 
he had no games, not even tiddle-de-winks, and we couldn't eat 
candy all the time. He was too busy to watch us when we played 
and it grew tiresome just sitting down without even a cat to tie 
ribbons on. Altogether it was a horrid place. 

I spoke of taking Marion home, but Mr. John urged us s 
strongly to stay that it was truly quite useless to think of going 
un til_ W ell, until a man whom I liked ever so much— more than I 

did Mr. John— came in. 

"Say," he said (he always called everybody "Say"), "Do yon 
happen to have a stray child here?" I thought it was horrid 
him not to ask for Marion too, since she was the one who wai 
to go home. I simply decided to take her home with me. 

It seemed to me we went home ever so much slower than we 
came. Marion was dreadfully heavy and she would nol *■«■ 
Finally we reached the house. Mother looked at us «W.*» 
I spoke for us both, dropping Marion as I ran to get on MOtner 

lap. . „ rt , n r 

"Oh!" I cried, "You're nicer than Mr. John, or ice cream, 
candy or cake— or anything else." . e 

Next morning I had to paste Marion's wig on agaim 
when she fell to the floor. Julia SWORD,

A (Hijarartrr g>kp trl? nf Antra* 

The hero of the Aeneid seems scarcely more, sometimes than 
a tool in the hands of the gods, for it was at their command that 
he left his home and wandered many years over land and sea 
seeking the country foretold by the Fates. Aeneas was usually 
spoken of as pius, that is, dutiful Aeneas; but he was also brave 
in spirit and deed, as was shown by his valor on the night when 
ancient Troy fell, by his return to Troy in search of Creusa, his 
wife : by his behavior in shipwreck, and in other misfortune'; by 
his brave, calm reply to Dido's passionate accusation and scorn. 
Not only could Aeneas bear misfortune bravely, but he was strong 
enough in mind also to press his troubles and cares deep down 
into his courageous heart, so as to cheer his desponding allies and 
followers and lessen their grief. After each disaster he encouraged 
the men to be cheerful, because the gods would surely give them 
the promised rest and quiet some time. His sympathetic nature 
was evidenced when Dido was borne away fainting after her last 
appeal to him in person. He was very sad and eager to ease her 
mind and was unable to do so, because the gods had decreed other- 
wise. He was ever a true and devout worshiper of the gods, 
offering the proper sacrifice in the appointed way. Aeneas was a 
good soldier, quick in mind and action, and an honest, upright 
man. who subdued his own wishes and feelings to follow out the 
order of the Immortals. He loved Dido and wished to remain 
with her, but, since the Fates decreed differently, he bade her fare- 
well and sailed off toward Italy, the promised land.

Sollrr Skating 

As you fasten them on, you swell with delight 

For you think that none can come up to you, quite; 

You start with a leap and land with a thud, 

Alas ! for you fall in a pool of rich mud. 

The stars that you see are many and big, 

You decide that for skating you don't care a fig; 

With pains in your head and aches in each bone, 

You pick yourself up and go slowly home.

jSemutisrettres of tljr iCiiiraru, 

One morning a crowd of girls, mostly Caesar students, assem- 
bled in the library to spend the first period in "study." Well. I 
really think they did intend to study, but suddenly something very 
funny happened which started them laughing and it was with great 
difficulty that the librarian reduced them to silence. Several simi- 
lar incidents occurred and the poor librarian was getting very cross 
when in walked the Dean, calm and seemingly unsuspecting. It 
was very amusing to see the change made by his presence Immedi- 
ately everyone was deeply interested in her lessons. Some were 
evidently trying to commit something, for they made their lips 
move nervously; others sat scowling at an algebra problem or 
some Latin translation, while one or two were writing ferociously 
with a scratchy pen, all of which gave evidence of hard study. 

The relieved librarian smiled in amusement as she took up her 
book to have a few minutes of undisturbed study. I thought I saw 
a twinkle in the Dean's eye as he glanced about on his way out of 
the library, and he must have been proud to see so many unusually 

ambitious pupils.

The teacher came into our room 

And then with manner grand, 

She stepped inside and looked around 

And slightly waved her hand. 

She said to Fritz — also to me — 

That noise we soon should rue; 

She promised us an awful fate, 

She made a great to-do. 

With drooping hearts we seized a book, 

Our souls no longer gay, 

She, with an unrelenting look, 

Then turned and went away. 

Marie Weyraucii, 'io 



One dark and dismal morning long ago 

The world was filled with rain and sleet and snow; 

It seemed a very little thing to do, 

Nor did we think our folly we should rue, 

We only slept, unmindful of the bell; 

We little thought it tolled our hearts' death knell. 

The Principal came tripping down the hall, 

And parted us forever: that is all.

The book most blest — the book the best, 
The book I choose from all the rest, 
Is not a Hymn Book — O, how bad ! 
Is not a Prayer Book — O, how sad! 

It's not a Shakespeare or a Burns, 

A Botany of flowers and ferns 
Nor is it blank — but if you'll look, 
It is a nice, full pocket-book.

She told me that she wished me to remain. 
I stayed. My misery words can never frame. 
She didn't scold but, Oh, her words brought fright 
For punishment I rhyming lines must write. 
Those lines must tell of mirth and tragic things, 
Oh, how I wished then, that my thoughts had wings ! 
The thing is done! Observe the mirth, will you! 
For tragedy please give me all that's due.

"My name/' said he further, "is Prof; I am come from the 
land oi Honor, beyond Achievement; my mission is to guide all 
pilgrims to the mountains in the far distance. But, indeed, though 
1 have helped many, yet despite my aid, as many are lost on the 

way." 

Grind now looked closely at his companion, and perceived him 
to be an old and wrinkled man, and one who wore an appearance 
of deep learning, with spectacles fastened so firmly upon his nose 
that they seemed to have grown there, and a folio in his right 
hand. In his left he held a cord by which he led a tiny puppy. The 
dog was indeed little and weak, but for all that he showed his 
teeth and snapped unceasingly at Grind's heels* 

Their way lay through a colorless plain, the vegetation of which 
was only a rough, prickly brush. 

Suddenly Prof roughly seized his companion's shoulder and 
jerked him quickly backward. Grind looked up in anger, but, fol- 
lowing Prof's pointing finger, saw before him a deep chasm, from 
the bottom of which came faint groans. 

*\\h !" said Prof in a deep whisper, "I have but saved you from 
the Chasm of English Literature, into which many fall and perish 
yearly I" 

Meantime Grind observed a curious fact. The puppy, which 
was so small at the beginning of the journey, had been growing 
larger and longer,' and more fierce as his size increased; soon, to 
Grind's great alarm, he was changed into a most ugly monster — a 
dragon— which Grind recognized as the much-feared "Exams," a 
creature of whom he had been warned by his companions in the 
valley. 

The dragon rushed forward ; Grind braced himself, and drew 
his pen from his penholder, but the point was snapped in twain, 
and Grind was left defenseless. 

Very astonishing to hear, Prof, the companion who had seemed 
to be so friendly, stood off from the fray smiling; nay, he even 
applauded with excited words his faithful pet. 

Grind, having been weakened by his many months of toil, 
after only a slight resistance, was gobbled up into the cavernous 
mouth of the monster; and the last Prof saw of his erstwhile 
companion was a pair of shabby boots waving frantically in the 
throat of the dragon. Winifred Seeger, 'ir

The lecture course has been varied and interesting. Dr. Henson, 
of Boston, entertained his audience and pointed a moral as well in 
Ins lecture on "Grumblers." Mr. H. W. Thurston, Chief Probation 
ficer of the Chicago Juvenile Court, explained the work done in 
this modem department of judicial procedure. In the lecture on 
the Russian Revolution, by Professor Samuel Harper, of the Uni- 
versity of Chicago, the case of the Russian people was stated 
impartially and clearly, giving the hearers a more sympathetic 
understanding of the situation in Russia than is obtainable from 
rather sensational press accounts. Professor Clark, of the Univer- 
sity of Chicago, made even the time-worn Julius Caesar absorbing. 
His reading as well as his talk the following day in chapel gave an 
impetus for a more intelligent study of all literature. 

iRwitala 

The recitals so far this year have numbered ten, eight of which 
were public. Mr. Liebling has visited us twice, appearing in 
recital on both occasions. The first recital was given in October 
and in this Mr. Liebling was assisted by the members of the music 
faculty. The second, in January, was a most enjoyable inno- 
vation as the programme was entirely of chamber music. Miss 
Pickens, 'cellist, of Chicago, and Miss Sleight, our violin instructor, 
assisted. The programme was most artistically rendered and 
included the Mendelssohn Ruy Bias Overture, Beethoven Trio, 
opus I, No. 3, and the Liebling Serenade. Mr. Albert Borroff, 
basso, of Chicago, gave a very interesting song recital on Novem- 
ber 25. Miss Florence Nelson played the accompaniments in a 
most sympathetic manner. The series of recitals of national music 
presented by the music faculty comprise seven programmes with 
Italy, Germany, Austria, France, the Slavic Countries, England, 
and America as the representative countries. They are preceded 
by an informal explanation of the music of the country and its 
development, and the programme is intended to present character- 
istic compositions. The pupils' recital, on December 14, was made 
up of numbers by the voice, violin, and piano departments and the 




THE FRANCES SHIMER QU ARTERLY 

department of expression. One very unusual feature was the sink- 
ing of old English carols by the Academy chorus. Two informal 
studio recitals have also been given by members of the music depart- 
ments. 

On February 8 the department of expression gave its annual 
exhibition at the Opera House, presenting monologues and the 
two amusing farces, "The Wrong Baby," and "The Lottery Ticket." 



Batial i-mmta 

The social events which have seemed very numerous and inter- 
esting this year began by two parties in honor of the new students: 
the customary "Who's Who" Party held in West Hall parlors the 
first Saturday evening, and the lantern party given on the follow- 
ing Saturday by the Young Women's Christian Association. 
Hollowe'en masquerade dance given by the Juniors offered peculiar 
allurements by giving all an opportunity between dances to 
different countries and receive national refreshments at each: 
piemento sandwiches in Spain, scones in Scotland, dates and figs 
in Persia, tea in Japan, and punch at all times in Germany. On 
Thanksgiving evening the Seniors banished all thoughts of home- 
sickness by gathering the school about the great fireplace in the 
dining-room to see shadow pictures, hear ghost stories and tales 
about the Pilgrims. With the memory of the long Thanksgi 
tables decorated with smilax and red carnations, and the merry 
impromptu rhyming toasts given by the different classes, each at a 
table of its own, many said they had never spent a happier Thai 
giving. Just now an alluring poster invites the school to the 
fancy dress "Prom" given by the Seniors in honor of Washington's 

Birthday. 

These are the social events given for the whole school. W 
tell about all that different ones have enjoyed would be bar* 
luncheons given by the Domestic Science girls, the pwtjj? 

which seem to come very often, the birthday spreads, the Y ■ 
C. A. teas, and the informal receptions given after concerts am 
lectures by Mrs. McKce to the faculty. But such an impression o 
gaiety does one have that it seems as if no recreation evening* 
without some special feature planned for in advance and tap. 
in thought long after.

This organization shows at present a degree of whole-hearted 
act ivity which is gratifying- to those watching its progress. 
Although changes had to be made in the administration in January, 
the membership has steadily increased until now the fifty-four 
enrolled include all but fourteen of the house pupils. Meetings 
have been regularly attended, twenty in attendance being the least 
number recorded, and very special interest has been shown in fur- 
nishing the two rooms on the first floor of West Hall. In October 
the Association was instrumental in bringing to the school Mrs. 
Abbie Snell Burnell, the interesting lecturer on "India;" the first 
of January twenty-five registered for a class in Old Testament 
history led by Miss Bowman, and a little later a circle of seventeen 
started to read aloud Monday afternoons The Vanguard, a tale of 
Korean missions. At the Christmas party for the rooms, a pretty 
soft brown rug, brown draperies, cushions for the long window- 
seats, a tea set, two pictures, and $8.40 for more pictures and 
cushions were welcome gifts. Later music was bought for the 
piano. To raise more money for pictures the Association sells 
light refreshments twice a week, to the delight of all the girls. 
Dana Wilcox is president; other members of the cabinet are Ellen 
Melendy, Inez Humbert, Amber Wallace, Josephine Woost, Mar- 
garet Munroe, Harriet Leigh, Edna Bruce, and Eva Roberts, 
Miss Votaw is counsellor for the prayer-meeting leaders; Miss 
Lee, general advisory officer.

This club has been making a study of Wm. Morris and the 
Pre-Raphaelite painters. The many-sided genius of Morris was 
a fruitful field for study for several weeks. Holman Hunt, Millais, 
Rosetti, as poet and artist, Burne-Jones, and Watts have filled the 
programmes during the winter.

year by the furnishing of rooms 6 and 7, on the ground floor, as 
parlors, one for the students, the other for the faculty. 
Y. W. C. A. rooms, adjoining, have also received many additions 
which make them very homelike. One other room on this floor is 
still empty and might well be added to the group of parlors it the 
trustees or some generous friend would give the wherewithal 
furnishings. The new electric clock in the first-floor con 
possibly accounts for the promptness of West Hall girls at m« j 

Alumnae who have roomed in Hathaway, and remember uk 
wild scramble at 6:55 A.M., will rejoice with us that the 
facilities on the second floor have been increased. 

Dearborn boasts a new piano in Miss Knighfs studi 
Tungsten lights throughout. The present system ot llghta 

scarcely be improved. q 

There have been many acquisitions in Metcali Hall. 
room chairs no longer have to be carried surreptitiously m ^ 
room to another, for each room is now abundantly suppn ■ ^ 
equipment of the physics laboratory has been largely increase

arc new maps m 



the Latin room; new pictures in the office, history 



lom and library; and Mr. Liebling's portrait adorns the chapel. 
The library has been equipped with Library Bureau furniture; over 
one hundred and fifty books have been added this year. A book 
plate designed by Miss Bawden has been adopted for use in classi- 
fication. A beautiful picture of a Pompeian wall painting and 
busts of Lincoln and Shakespeare, given by Mrs. Hattie LePelley, 
of Freeport, add to the attractiveness of the room. If the library 
is somewhat less popular since the edict went forth "No visiting 
and no magazines in study-hour," it is even more alluring- to dili- 
gent students. 

We are looking forward to seeing our cherished automobile out 
again after its winter banishment. It will probably continue to 
break down at inopportune times, but even a breakdown has its 
sunny side when it furnishes a pleasant morning walk and affords 
an unassailable reason for failing to appear at eight-o'clock classes. 
The smoke from the heating plant is still with us and continues 
to scatter soot promiscuously when the wind is from the south; 
but we have heard it rumored that the trustees are going to put in 
a smoke consumer and we are hoping for better things- 
Arrangements have recently been made whereby the girls go 
for a fifteen-minute walk directly after breakfast The required 
afternoon walk has been correspondingly shortened and the plan 
seems to meet with general approval. 

Under Mrs. Allen's kindly oversight the girls are increasing in 
a knowledge of practical housekeeping as applied to their own 
rooms. The honor roll for cleanliness and order at all times 
includes Misses Cooper, Bruce, Humbert, Smillie, and Wilcox. 
Others who deserve mention for neatness are Misses Boyd, Cald- 
well, Eva and Frances Roberts, Seeley, Stenger, Weyrauch, Wolz, 
Welsh, and the Misses Sawyer.
